This is the Picture (Excellent Birds)

I have been a fan of both Peter Gabriel and Laurie Anderson for many decades now.  Peter Gabriel is a genius and his music has an addictive quality that seats itself in the far recess of your brain, and once there, you need to feed on his music.  Laurie Anderson, like Gabriel is a genius, but has an Avant Garde style to her music, which I still find refreshing to this day, with tracks like “Language is a Virus” and “Let x=x”.  When they collaborated on “This is the Picture (Excellent Birds)” in 1986 I could have wet my pants with excitement, two of my favorite artists in one hit.  This is the official video after remastering in 2012.

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home. Apps
